One of the Filipino traits that I am proud of is resiliency – that after all the calamities and misfortunes that our country has been receiving, we bounce back and try to overcome all the challenges. This is what Kuya Efren showed to the world by being chosen the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year.
The Filipinos may not be rich in material things, but they are rich in their hearts.
Congratulations, Efren Penaflorinda. You make the Filipinos around the world proud.
